Travel photographers capture Juan of a Kind stories


Travel photographers capture Juan of a Kind stories



I am a passionate travel blogger. I had the most amazing time of my life travelling the world before I was operated on ruptured Brain Aneurysm more than four years ago. I love meeting people be it here in the Philippines or abroad. I always travel like a local. I remember the first time I went to Bohol. I was at the Tagbilaran airport with no itinerary. I went out and chatted with several 
tricycle drivers and was only charged with the "local fare" and was told to try a famous local restaurant. In General Santos City, I met and was adopted for a night by the assistant municipal treasurer Ate Melins in her house and was even toured to Manny Pacquiao's restaurant and Jinkee Pacquiao's boutique. And ate Melins and were treated to a free dinner by Kuya Gary, a restaurant owner in Gen San. We happened to learn during our conversation with his wife that Kuya Gary is the first cousin of the husband of my first cousin. What a small world!  In Palawan, I was adopted for two nights by a co-passenger and his family.  His whole family and I had a blast when I asked them to join me on my island tour. ( They are from Palawan but never had a chance to do an island tour, I am happy that I made them happy in my own little way).  In Tacloban, I was toured by Tita Ludette to the different famous landmarks in Leyte and even had a U-turn in Samar via the world-famous San Juanico Bridge. In Singapore, I entered a restaurant and engaged the owner and the chef in a conversation and I even celebrated New Year's eve with them. In a Thailand temple, I had a cultural exchange with one of the caretakers. Anyway, this space would not be enough if I summarize all the people whose lives I touched and who touched mine during my travel days. I think that is so cool. Right? I got to meet new amazing people and I think that is the best thing about traveling.

Tales from these chance meetings are what a group of travel photographers and storytellers are chronicling through Juan of a Kind Stories, (www.facebook.com/JuanOfAKindStories). A project of Cebu Pacific Air, this online initiative showcases snippets of people’s lives from different corners of the globe, celebrating travel, connections, differences in culture, and the candid encounters with people one can meet in one’s journeys. From the heartwarming to the humorous, each anecdote captures the aspirations, quirks and passions of people from various backgrounds.

Among the participating storytellers for Juan of a Kind Stories is travel photojournalist Lester Ledesma, who has been writing about and photographing Asia for over 14 years. “I like that Juan of a Kind Stories focuses on people and not the places. Travel is always more fulfilling if you meet somebody along the way,” said Lester. “This project gives our readers the experience of meeting someone from another place.”

Another storyteller, Aaron Articulo traveled to three Southeast Asian countries and 10 provinces in the Philippines the past few months, and met people from all walks of life, gender, race, religion, and social class. He shared, “It has made me realize that at the end of the day, we are all truly equal—we are human beings, with the same desires, same aspirations, and the same dignity.”

Places, people, perspectives
Capturing unique stories through photos and videos, while traveling, is nothing new for Lester and Aaron. But Juan of a Kind Stories remains an exciting and fascinating project for both because of the variety of subjects they meet.

Lester counted Peter Chua of Malaysia among his favorite subjects for Juan of a Kind Stories. “I was peeking into the window of a closed magic shop in Johor when a man—Peter—called out to me from a cafe. It turned out that he owned the store and was a famous magician in the city,” Lester shared.

His new friend regaled him with magic tricks right at the café and even invited him into his shop. “I filmed him performing the first trick he ever learned,” said Lester. “For a famous magician to give you a private show for one – man, that was quite an experience!”

Meanwhile, Aaron said that one of his most inspiring Juan of a Kind Stories was that of Trio, an 11-year-old professional surfer from Bali. “The boy came from a broken family and ran away from home at a young age. He starved for a few days on the streets, until a good Samaritan fed, clothed and adopted him, even though the man had his own children,” he shared.

Aaron added that Trio’s newfound father turned out to be a surf instructor in Kuta Beach. “When Trio was ‘old enough,’ he brought him to the beach and taught him how to surf. In a few months’ time, the boy became a professional surfer, won pro-level surfing competitions, and now teaches at their mini-surf school in Kuta Beach. It’s like Trio found new life at the beach,” Aaron recounted.

Lester and Aaron join other storytellers Ferdz Decena, Hub Pacheco and Jojo Pensica in discovering the wonderful stories of people from around the world. Visit JuanOfAKindStories.com and follow its official Facebook and Instagram pages (@JuanOfAKindStories) for more.

SARAH GERONIMO: Launched as Sansan's Latest Endorser



SARAH GERONIMO: Launched as Sansan's Latest Endorser

Sarah Geronimo looks good all the time. And one of her secrets (aside from her blooming love life) is her pleasant disposition. Sarah is the perfect epitome of a naturally beautiful woman. 

"Simple, beautiful, talented everyday that is Sarah Geronimo," according to Ms. Chi, Sansan's product manager.


Sarah Geronimo practices what she preaches. Do you agree with me that Sarah looks very refreshing even with minimal makeup? 




Despite being the newest endorser of San San Cosmetics, Sarah believes natural beauty also shines through.

“Minsan tinatago natin ’yung natural beauty natin, parang feeling natin mas magiging maganda tayo pagka kino-conceal natin ’yung totoong features natin,” Sarah said. “Pero with San San, pinapaalala nila na, ‘Believe in your own natural beauty.’”



Sarah added, “You should believe that you're a beautiful person. It is not only about your skin or your features. You should love yourself as a whole package. It is a process of acceptance." (Dapat paniwalaan mo na magandang tao ka. Hindi lang siya ‘yung dahil sa skin mo, or sa features mo, dapat yung buong pagkatao mo mahalin mo. It is a process of acceptance).”


At the launching event, Sarah said, "I'm so happy to be part of the San San Cosmetics family because I share the same advocacy with them to encourage young women to love their natural beautiful self. It's beautiful to be simple." 


#SarahGeronimo advocates that women should embrace their natural beauty by being simple. She further adds that HBC's San San Cosmetics gives her a healthy, simple, beautiful look every day. 

"On cam, I'm always glammed up. So when I'm on break from work, I go for an all-natural simple look because that's who I really am. When you're true to yourself, you become more confident and that confidence makes you beautiful," quips Sarah G.

KAPITOLYO PASIG FOOD TRIP: Size Matters Sausage Burgers


KAPITOLYO PASIG FOOD TRIP: Size Matters Sausage Burgers 



Yesterday, my blogger friends and I went to the Ground Floor of Ace Water Spa at United St., Kapitolyo, Pasig, not to try the water spa but to have some gastronomic adventure at #‎sizematterspasig.

Size Matters Sausage Burgers restaurant offers not your usual fastfood beef burger that gets smaller by the second. Size Matters Sausage Burgers restaurant serves gourmet sausage burgers. My number one pick is its Italian Burger Job “IBJ” ¼ lb that costs Php189. I was so excited when I took a bite because you could taste the freshly baked tasty bun, Italian sausage patty, sweet tasting caramelized onions, Monterey Jack, garlic cream cheese, lettuce and tomatoes in every bite. I am glad that it did not scrimp on the ingredients! Yey! Four of us shared this yummy invention. 

I hardly ever give this rating but I think this deserves 5 fingers. So there you go, my first ever 5 fingers rating for a gourmet burger.


Next in line is the Breakfast in Bed “BIB” ¼ lb Php189.  At Size Matters Sausage Burgers you have an option to add on whatever you like such as Maple Bacon for only Php35, egg for Php10, and so on and so forth.


Instead of the usual bun, Size Matters Sausage Burgers uses English muffin for its Breakfast in Bed “BIB” burger.                                                                                                 

When I took a bite, I tasted sweet caramelized onions, breakfast sausage patty, bacon, fried egg, American cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes and mayonnaise. It was good but not as good as "IBJ".

Ratings:

And the finale- The Works Burger 1/3 lb. 


The last but definitely not the least burger will make bacon lovers very very happy. TWB burger is a bit salty for my taste. Maybe the salty taste comes from the cheese and bacon. The burger patties are huge, tender and very juicy. At 1/3 lb, it is definitely a steal at Php299.

Ratings: 

Introducing the all-new Lord of the Onion Rings! It is good and simple. I love it with ketchup and mayo.



Size Matters Sausage Burgers crispy coated onion rings make an excellent appetizer or side dish. Onion rings are a more exclusive menu item, appealing to a narrower, more discerning customers. Thus, it is important to get the very best, right? Most of us will mindlessly gnaw away at the sleeve of tater twigs in front of us, even if they're not our fave. But a righteous ring is worth going out of your way for. I'd even argue that the rings are the thing that decides many a burger destination. Size Matters Sausage Burgers thinly sliced onion rings are less greasy that their counterparts. They taste good and taste even better when dip in bleu cheese which costs an extra Php40, but if you like to scrimp on food just use mayo. 

Please note that the Lord of the Onion Rings is not yet included in the menu but you can order this. Just tell your server you want one. 

Ratings:

Carbonara


Carbonara is one of my favorite dishes. I like the Size Matters Sausage Burgers version.

couldn't wait to bring my brother who is a carbonara snob at Size Matters Sausage Burgers. Let's see how he will react.


Ratings:

Salad



Fresh and yummy. Simple but tasty.

Ratings:



Chili wings on a hot afternoon. I love Size Matters Sausage Burgers version of buffalo wings as they are so tasty and meaty and the wings' three (3) parts are intact.

Ratings:

Service 

The service is top notch and fast.

Bathroom

It is clean and has tissue, water and soap. The flush is working too. I also love the fact that the owner provided hand sanitizer on each table.



Glory to the free wifi!


The restaurant could probably seat about 20 people and I appreciate the simple interiors. It is a diner with straightforward menu.





Its outside seating area transformed into de facto al fresco smoking area can accommodate up to 15 people.



I was amazed how a locally conceptualized store came up with so many yummy burger combinations. Yes, with an "s" because it doesn't have only one but several kinds of gourmet burgers. ‬Mind you, this joint don't offer the usual boring fast food small-sized burgers. 

I think it is a plus that customers can even come up with their own burger combination. You could even choose your favorite root beer companion. My blogger friends and I had the best tasting root beer ever. Please go ask them the brand ha ha ha! It will give the number one root beer brand a run of its money. It is being offered for only Php65.

All of the burgers are sausage-based patties and sausages tend to be more flavorful at times than regular burger patties, so I’m happy about this. Size Matters’ Italian Burger Job satisfies and is filling, even if it’s just the ¼ lb.




Size Matters is open from 11am to 11pm Sun. to Thurs and 10am to 1am Fri. to Sat. ‪#‎sizematterssausageburgers‬



All the servings were huge and they really made my tummy full.




I encourage you and your friends to try out this joint. I can't help it, but I want to come back again soon for more of its gourmet burgers. The double patty burgers are big enough for 2 to 4 people depending on your appetite. 


Overall rating:

All of its burgers are juicy and tasty especially with the mustard, ketcup and mayo they provide on every table. Definitely a must-try!

CHINESE NEW YEAR 2015 MUST DO


CHINESE NEW YEAR 2015 MUST DO

I believe in God. But I think there is nothing wrong if we try this ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui for the upcoming Chinese New year 2015. For me, it is merely practical suggestions on what we must do in order to have more good luck. Welcoming New Year be it the beginning of the calendar year or Chinese New Year, it always marks a new beginning for each one of us. Starting fresh means making changes that will hopefully bring us more blessings in the year to come. Infeng shui terms it means ushering in new energy to bring in abundance and success. I already posted the suggestions below last December 2014 in another blog, but I believe it is still applicable for the coming Chinese New Year. So here it goes. Philippine feng shui expert, Master Hanz Cua recommends that you include these 8 essential tips to observe when welcoming Chinese New Year 2015:


General Cleaning and Cleansing. Prepare your home by doing a general cleanup of both the inside and the outside of your house. Clean up any clutters that are lying around inside the house and get rid of broken appliances or gadgets. Broken objects and shabby surroundings invite poverty. Do your cleaning before New Year’s day itself. When all is done, “cleanse” the premises by burning incense.

Wear Red for Power and Green for Wealth.

New Haircut. A new hairdo will help activate the Peach Blossom Star of Romance, especially for those singles who are hoping to find their special someone.

Bountiful Chinese New Year Spread. Celebrating Chinese New Year’s Eve in a bountiful manner guarantees a year of prosperity. Meat, fish and greens should be represented and different types of fruits and cakes for good luck. Don’t forget to leave some leftovers of each dish, this symbolizes that you will not run out of food for the rest of the year.

Twelve Different Kinds of Fruits. Choose twelve kinds of fruits to symbolize each month of the year.

Pineapple-is the one fruit that you must always have in your basket. The Hokkien word for pineapple is ông-lâi, which means 'fortune comes.'

Orange-represents gold in Chinese tradition; its round shape means signifies money.

Apples- the Chinese word for apple in is ping, which means harmony.

Grapes-represent luxury; traditionally, it was eaten by kings and royalty.

Banana-they come in clusters, which symbolize unity; its yellow color stands for happiness.

Mangoes-the sweetness of ripe mangoes signify the sweetness that is among family members.

Lemon-its fragrance and essence is known to cleanse or remove negative 'vibes.'

Watermelon (Pakwan)-its color means prosperity and many seeds stand for abundance.

Papaya-like the orange its color is symbolic of gold.

Lychees-its round, red body stands for happiness and good fortune.

Avocados-green or purple color both symbolize prosperity.

Pomelo (Suha)-its bright red or pink pulp represents good health.

Check the Plumbing and Electrical System. Any leaks in your pipes and faucets correlate to leaks in your finances. Light bulbs, outlets and switches should all be in good condition. Burned out light bulbs and faulty wiring signifies poor chi flow, which means your good luck suffers too.

Red Envelope (Ampao). These small red envelops decorated with gold Chinese characters are given as gifts by the elderly to the children or younger generation on the eve of New Year. There is always a certain amount of money inside. This represents a “payment” to appease the ghosts so they won’t harm the recipients of the ampao. In general the red envelop signifies protection and good luck.

Making a Loud Noise. The Chinese believe loud noise drives away evil spirits.
